I am very proud to be involved in Communities in Schools (CIS) here in Benton and Franklin counties. CIS works closely with students in twenty-five different schools in our area. CIS directly helps our most vulnerable students stay in school and surrounds them with school-based staff partners to unlock each student’s potential. The great thing about CIS is that they use detailed data about each student to evaluate all aspects of the program and then use the data to constantly improve. Please join me in helping to support the positive role CIS plays in the Tri-Cities.
